Where the Seattle Symphony played as a toddler

A century ago, before the Moore Theater hosted acts like Megadeth, it was where Seattle’s arts patrons could lift themselves from the muddy sinkhole that was then Pioneer Square and enjoy Bach or Beethoven in Belltown with the fledgling Seattle Symphony. In celebration of the Moore’s 100th birthday, the SSO is returning to its smaller digs this evening under the baton of Associate Conductor Carolyn Kuan. The program, Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, Stravinsky’s Suite from Pulcinella, and Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, rewards classical fans and newbies with pieces easy on the ears and fond in the heart—the music that brings Benaroya audiences to their feet, in a far more intimate setting.
